The disposable materials that we generate in our homes, depending on whether they are treated correctly or not, end up in landfills or household waste recycling centers.
A landfill is a site designated to dispose of the waste we generate. Typically, at these designated sites, large holes are built into which garbage is buried.
The recycling centers or household waste recycling centers, are places where recyclable waste is collected, separated and laid up, to be later transferred to another area or facility for recycling or transformation.
In the UK, recycling centers and rubbish collection services commonly use blue bins to identify dry waste such as:
- Newspapers and magazines
- Unwanted mail
- Telephone directories and catalogs
- Cereal boxes (without the plastic liner)
- Egg cartons
- Greeting cards
- Drink and food cans
However, not always the container for dry recyclables is blue. Some municipalities use red recycling containers or some even issue blue and red containers for this type of material.
To have precise information, you can consult your nearest recycling center.
The recycling rate in the UK has increased in recent years, but so has the generation of waste.
The percentage that is recycled in the UK so far is approximately 45% of the waste generated.
The latest report from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) indicates that the waste generated in British homes amounts to approximately 26 million tonnes of waste each year, of which only 12 million are recycled. The other 14 million tons end up in landfills.
Recycling symbols are those images that appear on all kinds of products, articles and packaging so that consumers know what type of waste they are (recyclable or non-recyclable) and what material they are made of.
Recycling symbols are important because they guide us to manage our waste well. However, there are some products and packaging that have not been properly labeled and do not contain a recycling label.
If you have waste that you don’t know how to classify, contact your nearest recycling center.
